A Down-to-Earth Alan Jackson Rendition of “O Come All Ye Faithful”

Just like our phenomenal Alan Jackson, “O Come All Ye Faithful” has survived centuries since its conception in the mid-1700s. And with our star’s mellow and unpretentious delivery, all listening hearts are sure to hear the message of this old carol anew.

Highlights, Reception, and Reviews of Jackson’s Christmas Album

“Let It Be Christmas” is Alan Jackson’s 2nd Christmas album containing traditional Yuletide tunes. The only exception is the album’s title track, “Let it Be Christmas.” 7th on the track list, the tune is Jackson’s original composition and his Top 40 on Hot Country Songs chart.

The album successfully charted on Billboard 200, Billboard Top Country Albums and Billboard Top Holiday Albums. In addition, RIAA certified “Let it Be Christmas” Gold in January 2013.

Aside from Jackson’s mainstream fans, reputable Christian music records like the Capitol Christian Music Group are quick to recommend “Let it Be Christmas” for this season’s playlist.  (And we couldn’t agree more on that verdict over an array of other albums to listen to). Most tenured and rising singers tend to add their flare.  To be fair, that’s understandable as they’re trying to establish their marks.

Not for Alan Jackson though. With this Christmas recording, he did not attempt to outdo other singers in the background.  Wisely, he sang these carols in their traditional tune and not once tempted to add some twang on them.

Other than his concert packed-calendar, Alan Jackson finally gets the award of his life. In June, he was inducted into the 2018 “Songwriters Hall of Fame.”  Following that trail of honor, he also received the coveted 2018 Cliffie Stone Icon Award from the ACM Honors. The said event happened at the Ryman Auditorium in August.
